9 months old boy smarter than the sitter

Our area is a hit or miss in terms of dog sitters for Ferrari dogs (thanks for the expression Gingerling, i love it), the good ones usually are just between `normal` jobs... During the week i am usually alone with the boys, getting up latest at 5, playing, walking them before work, having a sitter coming in twice a day for the same, and continue the mental and physical stimulation during the evening. Had to go out of country for work this week and asked our walking sitter to do house sitting.
Landing on Friday at 2 pm in Houston back from London, i discovered that our alarm system has been going on for hours.... after some investigation i figured that the sitter left at 10.20, it went off at 10.49 and our alarm company has dispatched police, but they could not find anything suscpicios walking around the house. asked them to meet me at the house as i arrive. More research made me think that the alarm was triggered from inside the house movement and not by door opening. so kind of suspected it could be a dog getting loose...
as i opened the entrance door i saw on the living room floor xmas in March pieces and a rocking chair moving, next second Miksa in my arms, moooommm finally u are here... i calmed him down, took him out, he peed and pooped for several minutes, then put him back to crate, got Bende out, he was just, mom, i don`t care what happened, u are here, so life is good.
I started cleaning up and realized that all Miksa destroyed was a toy, a crate mat and the doggy mat at the backdoor... 9 months old immature pup, but he did not touch anything human in the house, despite of even getting up to the second floor and having to listen to the alarm noise for 4 hours... he could have set the house on fire, help himself from the treats which were on the kitchen counters, destroy furnitures etc etc. Clearly impressed with him... not so much with the sitter as u can guess.
took them for the first dock diving practice of the season on Saturday, happy pups. attaching some pictures.

Gab, methinks you just need to retire already, what else do you really need?

I recall about 10 years ago a similar situation with my then Beloved. In crate, went to work, alarm goes off, call from security, police dispatched. My only thought was for him, and when I got home, some 30 minutes after the police, there he was curled up on the sofa, flicking his tip, the alarm blaring. He had gotten out of his crate, and never needing to return.

Not all life lessons are obvious.

All is well, that ends well.
I would think the alarm going off for hours would be nerve racking. So glad it didn't seem to upset them.
Mine will reset after 30 minutes, if it's the inside motion detector, But that would be a long thirty minutes for June.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.

Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.
